      I can remember the first time I saw that man run a 200m dash.. I thought to myself, finally we have found an equal of Bullet Bob...

        Tex, thanks for letting some old timers onto some of these teams ( for once ! ) such as Mel Patton for USC.

            I thought of those three along with Jack Davis, Dick Attelsey and Charles Paddock. Who would those guys and the ones you mentioned replace?

              As you know Edwards did end up at USC. The first time I saw him he was a CPSLO Mustang. He was on a totally different level than the competition. Yep.."who is that?"

                Can't talk Cali sprinting and not have Patton, Davis and Leamon King.

                  Not to mention Edesel Garrison and Earl McCullouch of Southern Cal, or James McCalister of the Uclans.

                    No, of course. I just got carried away when you listed Mel Patton. Sure glad I did not bring up Lloyd La Beach.
                    I never learn!

                      There are no other schools with that quality/quantity in those events I mentioned, that rivals USC/UCLA. TCU has a ton of sprinters but where's their long jumpers/hurdlers? Baylor has a truck load of quartermilers but what else?

                        I'd definitely add in James LuValle in both of these lists above. He was the 1935 NCAA champ and 1936 Olympic Bronze medalist in the quarter. Even though his 47.x pb is not comparable to those other guys in straight-up time terms, NCAA champ and Oly medalist is good enough for me.

                        Also...
                        How about a UCLA 400H list

                        Kevin Young
                        Andre Phillips
                        Brandon Johnson

                          110 Hurdles. I would subsitute Milan Stewart for Sam Turner. I always thought Milan's '82 NCAA win in the rain is one of the most under rated performances.

                          My opinion:
                          If conditions had been dry Gault wins - Stewart won because he was more determined not because he was the fastest.

                            Going way back to the beginning, did Sheats, Rodriguez or Malott ever run as fast as Ben Eastman? I know Malott didn't.

                              Bill, would you consider Malott a "Harbig like" talent?
                              All I know is that he seems to have retired at age 21 (after the '38 season) + he comfortably beat Harbig in '38 over 400.

                              He seems to have had Harbig like speed in the 200 and he could also run the 800.
